They hired some inexperienced servers that have no clue about Brazilian food or culture.

Very nice Churrascaria. Overall the food was very good. The pork was a little dry and and filet was over cooked, but everything else was very good. Service was a little inconsistent with waters coming by even though the red card was out, but then not always there when the green card was out.

Overall though, a very competitive Brazilian steakhouse.

Very good food. I wish some of the choices changed a little, particularly on a day like Easter to have some different choices. As expected, the decor of the restaurant is very commercial and not warm or interesting. Do let the meat servers know how you like your meat so they bring you some when they have it just right for you.

This is our favorite metroplex churrascaria and we noticed almost immediately that the original management and servers are no longer there and replaced by new faces (except for one gaucho that we'd originally been served by at Boi Na Braza and subsequently here). Happy to say that the high quality of the food has not changed with the staff. The wait staff and gauchos did a great job and quickly accommodated us with any request. Great meal and evening. Will be back soon.

Always a pleasure to go to this place. Service is better than most, very accommodating, very attentive great team of servers! Wow. Can't wait to go again. But when our son turns 13, his price goes up to adult level. Will have to save up a bit for that 😄

This place is pretty good, not quite on par with Estillo Gaucho but for the location it serves the purpose. Service was absolutely incredible. We were there on a Monday night so it wasn't super busy, which doesn't always play to your favor at a Brazilian steak house but they had all the meats available and at good intervals. Will definitely go back.

Overall the food and service lived up to expectations...HOWEVER the “ambiance “ left a lot to be desired....the decor, and the lighting especially did a disservice to the restaurant’s offerings, and its potential to be an “upscale “ establishment....

Carvao has amazing protein choices, but their salad bar is the best I’ve had. From lobster bisque, to the smoked salmon, to their cheese selection. The service is top notch and we now go at least once a month. Great edition to Flower Mound!

Selection and taste was just as good as the more well known churrascaria's in the area (Texas de Brazil, Rafain, etc.), but the service was better and it's in Flower Mound, so I when I want this type of meal I won't need to drive to Dallas or Fort Worth anymore!

We have been to Carvao many times and the food and service is always good. However, on this occasion, it was Valentine's day. I prepared well in advance, over two weeks, and got reservations for a table of 6. When we arrived at 6pm, the restaurant was already very full and busy. No problem, because I made reservations, right? Nope, the ladies up front told me it would be at least thirty minutes. I complained that I had made reservations and didn't understand why we would have to wait so long. Her response was, "Well, it's Valentines and we overbooked." This sounded to me as if they reserved more tables than they had in the restaurant. I could not believe this. The other hostess says, "We are really busy tonight because it's Valentines." Well yeah, that's why I made reservations way ahead of time because it's Valentines. Anyway, I spoke to the manager, and they worked as quickly as they could. In the end, it still took thirty minutes. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and not prepared this evening. Other customers noticed and complained as well. I assume in the future management will be better prepared for such an event. We will still go to Carvao, but we might avoid big holidays.

Definitely not like any other Brazilian steakhouse we have been to. Wait staff wasn’t attentive. We had to ask for small plates and the sides that are normally served multiple times. We were definitely not offered all of the cuts of meat. Overall it was a terrible experience and we will not be back.

I was so impressed with the variety of the salad bar I had to try everything, and ended up with three plates in total. Barely enough room for the three bites of steak. The "House marinade" steak was to die for. Don't do what I did. Turned out to be a very expensive salad. Wait staff were annoyingly friendly and always right there before you raised your head to look for them. Another notable item was the Brazilian Margarita. I had three just to be sure I gave you a thumbs up. Thumbs up.

This is our favorite place in the Lewisville-Flower Mound-Grapevine area. The service is exceptional. The salad bar is terrific, but go easy on it, to leave more room for the meat! Wonderful meats--every kind you can think of--chicken too. Wonderful wines, and there's a dessert they light on fire. Who could ask for more?

Pricey! 6 of us dined and it was $450.00 and only two were drinking. Since there are no prices, no idea what the per person amount was. Salad bar wasn’t as expected. Wait staff was phenomenal and best martini in the area.
